that toppled former president hosni mubarak. so they're demanding a change from president morsi. >> lama, we heard that emergency law was ordered in three provinces in egypt. has that been enforced? >> reporter: exactly. despite this emergency law that was announced in the three provinces, the protesters defiantly took to the streets overnight and what sparked the violence over the weekend, particularly in port saed, was a verdict that sentenced 21 die-hard soccer fans to death for storming the field and attacking a rival team resulting in a blood bath. this took place last february. within minutes of the verdict, family members went on a rampage attacking police stations and government buildings. police fired back, killing at least 32 people and injuring hundreds. the army moved in to try to seize control. of course, egypt's cabinet has given the army more powers now, especially the power of arrest. but it is clear from the protesters that the fact that they defied this emergency law is a clear message to the president that they're not going anywhere. they're not going to back down. >> gett
